Remember when Governor Rick Perry burst into the presidential race? Arguably one of the things that made him quickly rise to the top was the answer he gave to a question about global warming at an August 17th event: "I think we're seeing almost weekly or even daily scientists who are coming forward and questioning the original idea that man-made global warming is what is causing the climate to change."

Thanks for the link.

Unless we burn a lot more fossil fuel to fend it off.
This is “1984 Ministry of Truth” level propaganda.
